Glenn is replacing his rear main seal.

Talking No Leaks

Took the 370 out today for its monthly "exercise" and to test all the hose connections from the replacement of all 60 feet of heater hoses on this beast. Good news...not a single leak . I checked every connection at the engine, front heater, and auxiliary rear heater, and not a drop of coolant . I know this sounds insignificant, but since my shoulders are still recovering from all the twisting and contorting I did to get that job done, I was a little concerned something had to leak. Also, it appears the replacement of the air filter, fuel filter, pcv valve, breather element, and some degreasing of spots where there was a little hydraulic "weeping" and tranny gasket "weeping" (but no dripping) has eliminated a rather constant smell of "engine odors" I had been experiencing. I also worked on the fit and gasket of the dog house cover to seal it off a little better. Only engine smells were when I finally parked. That appeared to be just normal exhaust smells, since it quickly dissipated when I cut the engine off. Do any of you experience "engine odors" (not gasoline) when parking a hot engine MoHo? Is that normal, or should I go looking for a source. The engine is clean, with no oil drips or runs of any kind. I don't want to go looking for a "problem" that may not exist .

Anyone have any observations on the engine odors? I'm afraid this post may have gotten buried at the end of this thread.

Thanks,

Tim

Yes, we can smell a "hot engine" smell sometimes when we shutdown.
